There are so many things that stress us out these days: our jobs, our relations with people, our busy lives in general. Sometimes even a cluttered email inbox can make us feel frustrated, especially if we have too many tasks upon our heads already.
While there are so many causes of stress, there aren’t... see more actually as many ways to relieve it in a healthy way. Sure, things like yoga and meditation do help, but they often require either time (to visit yoga class, for example) or necessary environment (it could be hard to meditate in a noisy flat, after all).
But there is one thing that is just as effective for stress relieve yet much simpler: journal writing. While it does require some time to spend on, it doesn’t need anything else from you. Besides a pen and a paper, of course.

Here on the farm we vend at a local market that runs year-round. So when cold and flu season hits, we find ourselves on the front lines each Saturday trying to fend off germs and sickness as we sell products that encourage better health.
Ironically, I also taught a workshop at the farm this week on... see more natural solutions for colds and flu, so it’s no coincidence that I’ve succumbed to the seasonal yuck during one of our busiest times of the year.
There is an adage in herbal circles that if you really need a plant, it will present itself. I’ve found this to be very true over the years. There have been occasions where I’ve studied or needed a plant and have commented on nature hikes that it’s odd that we haven’t seen (fill in the blank). As things would have it, that is when the sought-after plant usually appears, as if it has presented itself to fulfill my needs.
Here in Ohio we have had quite a few frosts. The gardens now serve as a monument to what was an amazing harvest year of fruits and vegetables.
As my husband walked through the raised beds to survey the ghosts of our efforts, there hidden underneath a tangled mess of dead vegetable stalks and leaves sat a tiny clump of still-green garden thyme begging for attention. Just the thought of seeing something in the garden still alive as we near Thanksgiving got my husband thinking. He reminded me of the potential benefits of thyme for my cold instead of the typical go-to herbs like elderberry, ginger, and sage.
Encouraging Better Health With Thyme
Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) is more than just a seasoning for turkey and has an exceptionally long history of use. Even the Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians burned the herb in places of importance such as temples because the oils in the smoke had antimicrobial or purifying qualities.
Thyme is also known to work well for congestion and chest colds because of its expectorant properties. It helps break up mucus and has even been used to assist with conditions such as bronchitis and other respiratory-related illnesses.
As earlier civilizations knew, the herb has antiseptic qualities. It has antiviral and antibacterial properties that are just the ticket when you’re dealing with general cold or flu symptoms. Given that thyme is a great source of vitamins C and A, it’s a perfect fit for trying to preempt a cold or to help battle a full-blown attack.
Here’s a quick and simple thyme tea recipe (don’t forget to add thyme into your food throughout the day to give you an extra boost).

Cravings are a lot like an ocean tide. 
They come and go, they ebb and flow. They can rise with an incredible force, but if you're able to wait it out, they will eventually subside.
When you're facing a craving but you're mentally able to refocus – say by eating something healthy and... see more on your plan, or focusing your mind on a challenging task – the craving will go away. 
The more you can refocus and move through the craving, the more in frequent ear cravings will become. By the same token, the more you give in to a craving, the more frequently others will arise. 
One of the most effective techniques to stop cravings and improve your mindfulness is urge surfing. 
Urge surfing is a lot like riding the waves on the surfboard, only you're doing it in your head.
When a craving hits, notice it and don't try to immediately distract yourself or argue with it.
Surf the urge rather than fight it.
Let it come, and then write it until it subsides.
Accept the craving – Just don't act on it. 
You can compare this concept of urge surfing to the practice of meditation. Your thoughts, feelings and emotions will come and go as you meditate, but the purpose is not to try to stop them, or shut them down, or act on them. The purpose is to recognize that they are what they are, and let them go. 
In addition to urge surfing you can enlist the number of tactics that I've written about in THIS article. 
Do you need help getting started? Has everything you've tried failed? Let me help. Shoot me an e-mail and let's talk.

Have you noticed that when a colleague says something negative about your work, you can’t get it out of your mind? Yet when three co-workers compliment you on a job well done, you don’t give it much thought.
You can blame your brain for that. Science indicates that the human brain has a negativity... see more bias, which means, according to psychologist Rick Hanson, Ph.D., “the brain is like Velcro for negative experiences but Teflon for positive ones.” Because of this bias, you need to intentionally create a high ratio of positive events to negative events.
You can bring more good vibes to your brain through practicing gratitude. You may already be thanking your partner for picking up groceries, but what about expanding your gratitude practice? Have you considered how many people contributed to the coffee you drink every day? The coffee bean farmers, distributers, truck drivers, coffee shop owner, barista, and many others played roles in getting a delicious cup of coffee in your hands.
With Thanksgiving around the corner in the United States, it’s a good time to enhance your day-to-day life through giving thanks. Research indicates that gratitude practices boost emotional well-being as well as physical health. The following are 25 easy ways to make gratitude a part of your day.
1. Send a Text Message
A simple “thank you for making my life brighter” text message can go a long way.
2. Keep a Gratitude Journal
Spend a few minutes each night jotting down three to five highlights from your day.
3. Pause Before Meals
Take a quiet moment of mindfulness before digging in, and silently thank everyone involved in making the food from the farmer to the preparer.
4. Run Errands with Gratitude
Make a point to thank each cashier, bank teller, and grocery bagger for helping you get through your errands. Your gratitude will no doubt enhance their days as well.

Do you feel pressure to improve? The year is winding down and maybe your life isn’t where you want it to be yet—despite all your best efforts to transform. Perhaps you’re comparing yourself to others who seem to have it all. Or you’re holding yourself to a standard that jacks up your stress and... see more tinkles on your joy. Well, I can certainly relate.
Every year around this time, I slowly begin my year in review by taking inventory on what worked, what didn’t, what turned out better and what was a total disaster. Suffice to say, I have examples in each of these categories. But here’s where it gets interesting, when I analyze what did work and why, there’s a common theme: simplification.
Small steps, consistently taken, add up to big changes. So if you’re itching for a wellness breakthrough, I encourage you to test drive a few simple shifts to your self-care routine, rather than sweeping changes that overwhelm you.
Change doesn’t have to be intense to work. Your life is already pretty packed—a little too packed if you ask me—so instead of loading up your to do list with goals and pressure, get a jump start on your New Year’s resolutions, intentions or whatever you like to call them, by trying some of the ideas below instead.

The following article is sure to give the skeptics something to raise their eyebrows about. It sounds hokey, I know — flower essences for healing? Honestly, I get it. Just stay with me here, and I’ll explain the mystery of how the vibration of a flower could actually help you.
Flower essences... see more are just that — the essence of a flower, harnessed in a way similar to how homeopathy extracts medicines. Essences are made by putting a flower or an herb into water, which is then left in the sun. Once ready, this water can be stretched out to make many, many vials of an essence, as the water now holds the vibrational imprint of that plant. A small amount of brandy is also added to preserve the concoction, so the essences tend to have a slight taste of alcohol. Are you still with me?
Everything Is Energy
Science is now catching up to this concept, as what was once thought of as solid material is now being understood as moving energy. There is a lot more empty space in an atom than we once thought, which means we are more connected than we think. With that in mind, it might be easier to understand how something like flower essences work, as the vibrational signature pattern carried by each flower interacts with your own vibrational field.
Unfortunately, very little scientific evidence exists to back this up, which may leave a lot of people skeptical, which is fair enough. But if science can’t prove something, does that mean it’s wrong or doesn’t work? Not necessarily.
Flower essence remedies generally impact our emotional states, because each emotion carries a specific vibrational frequency, and so each essence’s vibration can affect the vibration of specific emotions. If you take a flower essence for sadness and then feel better, does it mean the essence did what it intended to, or that it worked because the mind believed it would? It’s difficult to say, though in the end, does it matter whether the flower did the work or your brain, if the result is the same?
The following chart represents the vibrational signature carried by each emotion.

One way or another, all of us have experienced bloating at some point in our lives. Some of us, especially women, experience it pretty regularly, making it an unpleasant part of our daily routines. The big question is: can we prevent it, or at least minimize it? The answer: absolutely. 
This... see more article summarizes natural ways to prevent and deal with bloat (that is not a result of a medical condition or disease).
Please note that any lasting bloat, recurring constipation and severe pain in the abdominal area should be taken seriously and consulted with a gastroenterologist immediately. 
Some of the biggest culprits that can result in bloating are: big meals, fatty, processed and salty foods, stress, fizzy drinks, sedentary life, menstruation, menopause, depression, diabetes, alcohol, antibiotics, dehydration, parasites, poor gut micro biome, yeast overgrowth (candida), birth control pills, pregnancy, medications, constipation, too little or too much fiber, Celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, wheat allergy, inflammation of the colon, IBS, Crohn's Disease, and hormonal changes. Often times, combination of factors will lead to bloating and gas so keep reading to learn how you can prevent it. 
Follow these guidelines and natural ways to prevent, or at least minimize, bloat: 
Avoid fatty meals, which slow down stomach emptying and increase chances of acid reflux. 
Eat small, frequent meals - overstuffing your stomach can lead to reflux which brings on bloating.
Try not to lie down after meals (especially big) - gravity helps prevent acid reflux. 
Finish all your meals before it gets dark - digestion slows down once the sun sets. Good rule is to "breakfast like a queen, lunch like a princess, and dinner like a pauper". 
Limit eating out, and if you do, make it a lunch on a brunch date so you have more time to digest your food before you hit the bed. 
Exercise regularly to promote regular bowel movements. 
Reduce consumption of processed foods which lack nutrients, fiber and are loaded with salt, preservatives and added flavors. 
Avoid acid blockers - while they may be safe to use once in a while, overtime acid-suppressing drugs can cause bloat and change the pH of your stomach (from acid to alkaline) turning  it into a good environment for bacteria to settle and multiply.
Minimize occurrence of aerophagia (swelling air) by eating slowly and mindfully, not drinking during meals (drink before or after), avoiding carbonated beverages and spitting out gum. Also, quit smoking, which beside being detrimental to health (causes inflammation in the lining of your stomach and intestines, and kills beneficial gut bacteria), leads to inhaling and swallowing a lot of air. 
Drink at least 2 liters of water a day and consume water rich fruits and vegetables. Monitor your urine color - your pee should be clear to light yellow. 
Minimize caffeine, dairy and alcohol - they can worsen reflux and bloating. 
Go easy on salt (processed, pre-packaged, long shelf live and restaurant/take out meals are highest in salt) - salt can cause water retention, making you look and feel bloated. 
If you do have alcohol, make sure to drink lots of water between drinks to help flush the alcohol out of your system and prevent dehydration and bloating. Also, try to limit consumption to no more than one drink a day, avoiding binge-drinking. 
Minimize or eliminate carbonated water and other fizzy drinks. 
Avoid artificial sweeteners at all cost. Studies show artificial sweeteners increase insulin levels, as insulin is released as a response to sweetness not calories, creating more sugar cravings. Researchers have consistently found a correlation between drinking diet soda and being overweight. 
Moderate consumption of sugar alcohols (mannitol, sorbitol, xylitol, lactitol, isomalt, maltitol and hydrogenated starch hydrolysates (HSH)) often added to low-carb or sugar-free products such as protein shakes and nutrition bars. Excessive intake can cause bloating and diarrhea. 
Ginger tea has been proven to have a soothing effect on the digestive system, helping reduce gas and bloating. 
Warm water with lemon drank first thing in the morning has been proved to help move things along, and having a detoxifying effect on the liver. 
Safeguard your liver - main detoxification organ - by avoiding medications such as acetaminophen and tricyclic antidepressants. 
Aim for 25 to 30 g of fiber a day. Be careful of eating large amounts of fiber in one sitting (especially before you go to bed) - spread your intake throughout the day and try to keep your fiber intake the same. Additionally double up on your water consumption to prevent clogs. 
Although very healthy and potent cancer-fighters high fiber foods such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, beans and legumes can cause gas - if you are not used to eating them, start with a small amount, and slowly build up your tolerance; when serving them add lemon juice to them to stimulate digestive enzymes; additionally soaking beans overnight before cooking helps too. 
If you feel your bowels are getting backed up, and start to become really bloated, try a liquid diet for a day, drinking primarily water, green veggie juices and bone broth. 
Avoid antibiotics. 
If an antibiotic is necessary, request a narrow-spectrum one, which will minimize damage to your micro biome by targeting a narrower range of bacteria. 
Always take probiotics during, and at least one month after, an antibiotic treatment. Take the probiotic dose at a time as far away from the antibiotics as possible. 
Eat probiotics foods to support your gut bacteria - foods high in fiber and resistant starch are especially important when on antibiotics. Fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kimchi feed your gut bacteria as well as provide additional live microbes themselves. 
Eliminate sugary, starchy foods - yeast species love sugar, causing yeast to thrive and lead to test infections and contributing to microbial imbalance induced by antibiotics. 
Minimize inflammation in your body (including colon and intestines) by eating the best-quality food you can afford; aim for organic produce to minimize exposure to pesticides, responsibly farmed animal protein and wild caught, sustainably harvested fish and shellfish. 
Consume lots of anti-inflammatory foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, tuna, sardines), flax seeds, hemp seeds, walnuts as well as green leafy vegetables, bok choy, celery, beets, broccoli, tomatoes, olive oil, and fruits (especially berries, tart cherries and oranges). Sip on bone broth and add turmeric spice to your recipes. 
Lactose intolerance is a common reason for gas and bloating - try avoiding any dairy for 2 weeks and see if your symptoms improve. 
Manage your stress levels. 
If you have any questions about how to make appropriate dietary changes to minimize bloat, don't hesitate to contact me here.

Someone new to the crystal world may think the way a stone is cut or shaped is purely aesthetic, but there’s a little more to a crystal’s shape than meets the eye. While it won’t change the type of energy that a crystal gives off, the way a crystal is cut can affect and even enhance how you experience... see more that energy.
Think about it in terms of music. You can listen to the same song on a record player, with headphones, or through surround-sound speakers and have a completely different experience with it each time. It’s the same song, but the raw texture of a record player, focused feel of headphones, and full-bodied atmosphere of surround sound will all give you different perspectives. Knowing which crystal shape does what will help you amplify your experience based on the mood you’re in. Need to focus? Use a crystal point. Looking for some stability? Go for the grounding essence of a cube.

The Classic Battle Between Mind and Heart
In many ways, it is universally understood that self healing is made, and kept, through consensual agreements that are honored and respected. The same thing can be said about our inner peace. It is a consensual agreement and alignment between elements that... see more constitute our larger Self—the physical, mental, energetic and spiritual.
A widely referred to notion is the classical battle or disagreement between mind and heart. This is a fundamental truth, although a simplified one.
Our inner mental processes (thinking, doubting, analyzing, discerning, judging, expecting, etc) are often in conflict with our heart’s deeper calling (the feelings, intuitions, aspirations, inspirations and the powerful creative force of love and spontaneity).
This conflict or disagreement forces us into all sorts of inner turbulence. We lose focus, direction and energy in this inner battle because we do not have a clear path of action. We lack resolution and the power to move forward that normally comes out of having all of your ‘team members’ working together in the same direction.
Bad Agreements and ‘Soul Contracts’
Yet, the quest for self healing and finding agreement (or alignment) goes beyond the conventional view of heart and mind. In traditional energy medicine practice, and even in depth psychology, it is considered that there are different levels at play. For example, in some shamanic traditions it is believed that there is an interplay between four levels:
The perceptual,The mental,The mythical, and;The soul levels.

Accept the craving – Just don't act on it. 
You can compare this concept of urge surfing to the practice of meditation. Your thoughts, feelings and emotions will come and go as you meditate, but the purpose is not to try to stop them, or shut them down, or act on them. The purpose is to recognize that they are what they are, and let them go. 
In addition to urge surfing you can enlist the number of tactics that I've written about in THIS article.

Have you noticed that when a colleague says something negative about your work, you can’t get it out of your mind? Yet when three co-workers compliment you on a job well done, you don’t give it much thought.
You can blame your brain for that. Science indicates that the human brain has a negativity... see more bias, which means, according to psychologist Rick Hanson, Ph.D., “the brain is like Velcro for negative experiences but Teflon for positive ones.” Because of this bias, you need to intentionally create a high ratio of positive events to negative events.
You can bring more good vibes to your brain through practicing gratitude. You may already be thanking your partner for picking up groceries, but what about expanding your gratitude practice? Have you considered how many people contributed to the coffee you drink every day? The coffee bean farmers, distributers, truck drivers, coffee shop owner, barista, and many others played roles in getting a delicious cup of coffee in your hands.
With Thanksgiving around the corner in the United States, it’s a good time to enhance your day-to-day life through giving thanks. Research indicates that gratitude practices boost emotional well-being as well as physical health. The following are 25 easy ways to make gratitude a part of your day.
1. Send a Text Message
A simple “thank you for making my life brighter” text message can go a long way.
2. Keep a Gratitude Journal
Spend a few minutes each night jotting down three to five highlights from your day.
3. Pause Before Meals
Take a quiet moment of mindfulness before digging in, and silently thank everyone involved in making the food from the farmer to the preparer.
4. Run Errands with Gratitude
Make a point to thank each cashier, bank teller, and grocery bagger for helping you get through your errands. Your gratitude will no doubt enhance their days as well.

Do you feel pressure to improve? The year is winding down and maybe your life isn’t where you want it to be yet—despite all your best efforts to transform. Perhaps you’re comparing yourself to others who seem to have it all. Or you’re holding yourself to a standard that jacks up your stress and... see more tinkles on your joy. Well, I can certainly relate.
Every year around this time, I slowly begin my year in review by taking inventory on what worked, what didn’t, what turned out better and what was a total disaster. Suffice to say, I have examples in each of these categories. But here’s where it gets interesting, when I analyze what did work and why, there’s a common theme: simplification.
Small steps, consistently taken, add up to big changes. So if you’re itching for a wellness breakthrough, I encourage you to test drive a few simple shifts to your self-care routine, rather than sweeping changes that overwhelm you.
Change doesn’t have to be intense to work. Your life is already pretty packed—a little too packed if you ask me—so instead of loading up your to do list with goals and pressure, get a jump start on your New Year’s resolutions, intentions or whatever you like to call them, by trying some of the ideas below instead.

The following article is sure to give the skeptics something to raise their eyebrows about. It sounds hokey, I know — flower essences for healing? Honestly, I get it. Just stay with me here, and I’ll explain the mystery of how the vibration of a flower could actually help you.
Flower essences... see more are just that — the essence of a flower, harnessed in a way similar to how homeopathy extracts medicines. Essences are made by putting a flower or an herb into water, which is then left in the sun. Once ready, this water can be stretched out to make many, many vials of an essence, as the water now holds the vibrational imprint of that plant. A small amount of brandy is also added to preserve the concoction, so the essences tend to have a slight taste of alcohol. Are you still with me?
Everything Is Energy
Science is now catching up to this concept, as what was once thought of as solid material is now being understood as moving energy. There is a lot more empty space in an atom than we once thought, which means we are more connected than we think. With that in mind, it might be easier to understand how something like flower essences work, as the vibrational signature pattern carried by each flower interacts with your own vibrational field.
Unfortunately, very little scientific evidence exists to back this up, which may leave a lot of people skeptical, which is fair enough. But if science can’t prove something, does that mean it’s wrong or doesn’t work? Not necessarily.
Flower essence remedies generally impact our emotional states, because each emotion carries a specific vibrational frequency, and so each essence’s vibration can affect the vibration of specific emotions. If you take a flower essence for sadness and then feel better, does it mean the essence did what it intended to, or that it worked because the mind believed it would? It’s difficult to say, though in the end, does it matter whether the flower did the work or your brain, if the result is the same?
The following chart represents the vibrational signature carried by each emotion.

One way or another, all of us have experienced bloating at some point in our lives. Some of us, especially women, experience it pretty regularly, making it an unpleasant part of our daily routines. The big question is: can we prevent it, or at least minimize it? The answer: absolutely. 
This... see more article summarizes natural ways to prevent and deal with bloat (that is not a result of a medical condition or disease).
Please note that any lasting bloat, recurring constipation and severe pain in the abdominal area should be taken seriously and consulted with a gastroenterologist immediately. 
Some of the biggest culprits that can result in bloating are: big meals, fatty, processed and salty foods, stress, fizzy drinks, sedentary life, menstruation, menopause, depression, diabetes, alcohol, antibiotics, dehydration, parasites, poor gut micro biome, yeast overgrowth (candida), birth control pills, pregnancy, medications, constipation, too little or too much fiber, Celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, wheat allergy, inflammation of the colon, IBS, Crohn's Disease, and hormonal changes. Often times, combination of factors will lead to bloating and gas so keep reading to learn how you can prevent it. 
Follow these guidelines and natural ways to prevent, or at least minimize, bloat: 
Avoid fatty meals, which slow down stomach emptying and increase chances of acid reflux. 
Eat small, frequent meals - overstuffing your stomach can lead to reflux which brings on bloating.
Try not to lie down after meals (especially big) - gravity helps prevent acid reflux. 
Finish all your meals before it gets dark - digestion slows down once the sun sets. Good rule is to "breakfast like a queen, lunch like a princess, and dinner like a pauper". 
Limit eating out, and if you do, make it a lunch on a brunch date so you have more time to digest your food before you hit the bed. 
Exercise regularly to promote regular bowel movements. 
Reduce consumption of processed foods which lack nutrients, fiber and are loaded with salt, preservatives and added flavors. 
Avoid acid blockers - while they may be safe to use once in a while, overtime acid-suppressing drugs can cause bloat and change the pH of your stomach (from acid to alkaline) turning  it into a good environment for bacteria to settle and multiply.
Minimize occurrence of aerophagia (swelling air) by eating slowly and mindfully, not drinking during meals (drink before or after), avoiding carbonated beverages and spitting out gum. Also, quit smoking, which beside being detrimental to health (causes inflammation in the lining of your stomach and intestines, and kills beneficial gut bacteria), leads to inhaling and swallowing a lot of air. 
Drink at least 2 liters of water a day and consume water rich fruits and vegetables. Monitor your urine color - your pee should be clear to light yellow. 
Minimize caffeine, dairy and alcohol - they can worsen reflux and bloating. 
Go easy on salt (processed, pre-packaged, long shelf live and restaurant/take out meals are highest in salt) - salt can cause water retention, making you look and feel bloated. 
If you do have alcohol, make sure to drink lots of water between drinks to help flush the alcohol out of your system and prevent dehydration and bloating. Also, try to limit consumption to no more than one drink a day, avoiding binge-drinking. 
Minimize or eliminate carbonated water and other fizzy drinks. 
Avoid artificial sweeteners at all cost. Studies show artificial sweeteners increase insulin levels, as insulin is released as a response to sweetness not calories, creating more sugar cravings. Researchers have consistently found a correlation between drinking diet soda and being overweight. 
Moderate consumption of sugar alcohols (mannitol, sorbitol, xylitol, lactitol, isomalt, maltitol and hydrogenated starch hydrolysates (HSH)) often added to low-carb or sugar-free products such as protein shakes and nutrition bars. Excessive intake can cause bloating and diarrhea. 
Ginger tea has been proven to have a soothing effect on the digestive system, helping reduce gas and bloating. 
Warm water with lemon drank first thing in the morning has been proved to help move things along, and having a detoxifying effect on the liver. 
Safeguard your liver - main detoxification organ - by avoiding medications such as acetaminophen and tricyclic antidepressants. 
Aim for 25 to 30 g of fiber a day. Be careful of eating large amounts of fiber in one sitting (especially before you go to bed) - spread your intake throughout the day and try to keep your fiber intake the same. Additionally double up on your water consumption to prevent clogs. 
Although very healthy and potent cancer-fighters high fiber foods such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, beans and legumes can cause gas - if you are not used to eating them, start with a small amount, and slowly build up your tolerance; when serving them add lemon juice to them to stimulate digestive enzymes; additionally soaking beans overnight before cooking helps too. 
If you feel your bowels are getting backed up, and start to become really bloated, try a liquid diet for a day, drinking primarily water, green veggie juices and bone broth. 
Avoid antibiotics. 
If an antibiotic is necessary, request a narrow-spectrum one, which will minimize damage to your micro biome by targeting a narrower range of bacteria. 
Always take probiotics during, and at least one month after, an antibiotic treatment. Take the probiotic dose at a time as far away from the antibiotics as possible. 
Eat probiotics foods to support your gut bacteria - foods high in fiber and resistant starch are especially important when on antibiotics. Fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kimchi feed your gut bacteria as well as provide additional live microbes themselves. 
Eliminate sugary, starchy foods - yeast species love sugar, causing yeast to thrive and lead to test infections and contributing to microbial imbalance induced by antibiotics. 
Minimize inflammation in your body (including colon and intestines) by eating the best-quality food you can afford; aim for organic produce to minimize exposure to pesticides, responsibly farmed animal protein and wild caught, sustainably harvested fish and shellfish. 
Consume lots of anti-inflammatory foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, tuna, sardines), flax seeds, hemp seeds, walnuts as well as green leafy vegetables, bok choy, celery, beets, broccoli, tomatoes, olive oil, and fruits (especially berries, tart cherries and oranges). Sip on bone broth and add turmeric spice to your recipes. 
Lactose intolerance is a common reason for gas and bloating - try avoiding any dairy for 2 weeks and see if your symptoms improve. 
Manage your stress levels. 
If you have any questions about how to make appropriate dietary changes to minimize bloat, don't hesitate to contact me here.

Someone new to the crystal world may think the way a stone is cut or shaped is purely aesthetic, but there’s a little more to a crystal’s shape than meets the eye. While it won’t change the type of energy that a crystal gives off, the way a crystal is cut can affect and even enhance how you experience... see more that energy.
Think about it in terms of music. You can listen to the same song on a record player, with headphones, or through surround-sound speakers and have a completely different experience with it each time. It’s the same song, but the raw texture of a record player, focused feel of headphones, and full-bodied atmosphere of surround sound will all give you different perspectives. Knowing which crystal shape does what will help you amplify your experience based on the mood you’re in. Need to focus? Use a crystal point. Looking for some stability? Go for the grounding essence of a cube.

The Classic Battle Between Mind and Heart
In many ways, it is universally understood that self healing is made, and kept, through consensual agreements that are honored and respected. The same thing can be said about our inner peace. It is a consensual agreement and alignment between elements that... see more constitute our larger Self—the physical, mental, energetic and spiritual.
A widely referred to notion is the classical battle or disagreement between mind and heart. This is a fundamental truth, although a simplified one.
Our inner mental processes (thinking, doubting, analyzing, discerning, judging, expecting, etc) are often in conflict with our heart’s deeper calling (the feelings, intuitions, aspirations, inspirations and the powerful creative force of love and spontaneity).
This conflict or disagreement forces us into all sorts of inner turbulence. We lose focus, direction and energy in this inner battle because we do not have a clear path of action. We lack resolution and the power to move forward that normally comes out of having all of your ‘team members’ working together in the same direction.
Bad Agreements and ‘Soul Contracts’
Yet, the quest for self healing and finding agreement (or alignment) goes beyond the conventional view of heart and mind. In traditional energy medicine practice, and even in depth psychology, it is considered that there are different levels at play. For example, in some shamanic traditions it is believed that there is an interplay between four levels:
The perceptual,The mental,The mythical, and;The soul levels.
